From the Paper:

"Many studies and researches have shown that the success and growth of any organization is directly dependent on highly motivated and satisfied employees and workforce. Employees will perform well only if they are satisfied with their job and are motivated enough. Job satisfaction is the essential element for increasing the productivity of the workforce. Therefore human resource department should ensure that employees are satisfied with their jobs.
"It is the job of the human resource department to access and analyze the performance and productivity of the workforce and to strive for increasing and improving performance of employees. For this reason most of the human resource policies and practices are directed towards enhancing and improving the level of motivation and satisfaction of the workforce. The human resource practices and policies of any organization strive to generate positive attitude about the job among the employees which in turn results in high job satisfaction and motivation. All these factors increase the productivity of employees and thus, the productivity of overall organization would increase.
"It can be said that the human resource management practices are a crucial tool for increasing the motivation of the employees and for encouraging them to work towards the achievement and accomplishment of goals and objectives of the organization."
